The RTA will operate overnight rail service to accommodate additional customers planning to celebrate on Public Square New Year’s Eve festivities this year.

RTA will provide continuous service on the Blue, Green and Red Lines all night long on Dec. 31, through the morning hours of Jan. 1 and continuing all day on New Year’s Day. Normally, trains stop running around 12:30 a.m. and resume service before 4 a.m. for nightly maintenance.

That means Red, Blue and Green Line Rapids will operate from the beginning of service on Dec 31 until the end of service Jan 1. The Waterfront Line will not operate overnight.

RTA officials hope the increased service will encourage people to use public transportation for their New Year’s Eve activities throughout RTA’s service area, especially to downtown events, and those in Ohio City and Lakewood.
